Even though we absolutely LOVE how the nursery turned out, it still looked like something was missing on those big green walls. I didn’t want to hang pictures or anything that might fall in an earthquake (we do live in Los Angeles!), but it needed something to fill the space.
I saw a bunch of pictures on Pinterest and Etsy of these pendant flags and I decided to try my luck at making my own.

So I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics armed with lots of coupons and picked out four fabrics that match the sage/brown colors of the baby’s room.
I love the wood-looking one! Matches the deer!
I had some girls over for craft night, and I dusted off my sewing machine and hoped for the best using this tutorial (only I didn’t do my two-sided).
I have to say, they came out pretty amazing. I LOVE them! It definitely fills the wall and blends in the colors together!
They are pretty when they blow in the wind when the fan is on too. I have enough cut triangles to make one more strand of them, but I’m not sure it needs it. What do you think?
And extra-special thanks to the husband for hanging them up for me!
“A little higher up. No.. too high. Down a little. Left just a smidge. PERFECT!”
He’s such a great guy. =) He’s seriously going to be the BEST dad!
Psst! I had leftover fabric and embarked on another sewing project too! I’ll share that with you this week as well!

Congrats and well wishes for an easy delivery!
Just wanted to say, the room looks awesome! So excited for you and thinking of you!!
Over the closet door?
I suggested that, but it might look too piecemeal there. If I get bored down the road, I might make it and see where it looks best. =)
